It's Giveaway Day!  Sew, Mama, Sew! is coordinating a grand day of giveaways all over blogland, and I'm happy to add to the mix.  I have two different sets to giveaway.

The first is a colorful mix of Galaxy batiks and some swatches of Christmas prints.




The second set is a few pieces of some Michael Miller prints, a half-yard of a Lakehouse green with shiny green polka dots and four fat quarters of Moda Woodland Bloom




To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment.  Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you and if you have a preference for which set you'd like you can leave that as well.  If you have a moment before you need to rush to the next blog giveaway, I'd love to hear about a favorite Christmas tradition, recipe, craft, or present.

I'll pick the two winners on December 6.

Thanks for stopping by!

One of my favorite Christmas recipes kind of sounds weird, but they are so yummy and we make them every Christmas Eve. Wrap chicken with bacon and put on a toothpick with a chunk of pineapple. Cover in a sauce made from equal parts of sugar and ketchup. Broil until cooked through and caramelzed. SO good!

Allison said...

For Christmas, my mom always makes an Italian Cream Cake. I look forward to it each year.
Thanks for the giveaway. I love that Moda woodland fabric.

Desiree said...

A new tradition we are starting is baking a cake for Jesus. This year it is spice cake with cream cheese frosting. yum.

Erin said...

Hello! I'm glad to have found your blog via the giveaway day, and I'm really looking forward to reading your other posts. I adore the Michael Miller fabrics, great stuff. :) I have a Finnish Mushroom Pie recipe I make every year from the Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant cookbook - it is absolutely decadent and to die for, if you like mushrooms. Thanks for participating!

Maria said...

I'll have to say my favorite Christmas gift ever was my Bernina! I'm loving those Batiks!

Rachel's Quilts said...

I love making sugar cookies with the kids. They enjoy helping and take a lot of pride in eating and sharing the cookies they made.
Thanks for a great giveaway. I like the Michael Miller fabric.

Vicki said...

I'd love the second set.
When I was growing up, we always had to find our stockings in the morning because Santa had hidden them.

JacquieLH said...

I love the Moda fabric! For Christmas, my mother in law always makes her pretzel salad which is unassumingly delicious.

Morgan said...

I love the church traditions at Christmas - the Advent candle lighting, singing, decorating the church, all the anticipation. Probably because it's been a part of my life since childhood.

As for which fabric I prefer, well, I saw the batiks and said, "Ooooh!" Then I scrolled down and saw the Moda and "Oooh!" again...so...either. :)

Kris said...

My favorite Christmas tradition is the village that my parents put under the tree. My grandmother started it years ago, way before department 56 and there's something really magical about it to me. thanks for the giveaway! I'd especially love the Michael Miller prints!

christin said...

Our annual bonfire is my favorite tradition:) Lovely prizes!! Thanks!

Betsy said...

hihi. i love christmas also. I guess my favorite tradition is decorating the tree. I moved in to my own space this year and decorated my own tree. It was sad and yet I absolutely love my pitiful little tree.

Love both the fabric sets, but I'm partial to the michael miller. love all the fun prints in it!

Susan said...

Beautiful fabrics! A few of my Christmas favorites are, shortbread cookies, O Holy Night, and the movie, A Christmas Story!

merlinthecat said...

Hi what a great giveway I love the MM prints. I love setting up the x-mas tree with my 6yo

Anne at Film and Thread said...

I would love to win set 2! Our traditions are that we stay home instead of traveling and we have a Kugelhopf for breakfast! I have to get up EARLY to get the dough rising, but then again, I'm always excited to see what Santa has brought!

saganaga said...

2nd set please ! we enjoy celebrating Advent with several Advent calendars

Kati said...

What a great giveaway. My favorite part of the holiday is the decorations around the house. It's so warm and festive. And this year we will be celebrating my daughter's first birthday (12/22)!

MissMary said...

Thanks so much for hosting a giveaway! Those batiks are mouth-watering :-)

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is making sugar cookies. We use my great grandmother's recipe, roll out the dough, cut out the cookies and bake, then glaze and sprinkle away. :-)

kleiosbelly said...

Lovely giveaway! I love those batiks!

My favorite xmas tradition is a treasure hunt we do every year at my folks'. You can read about it on my blog if you're curious for more:

Rachel said...

Hi! Thanks for the giveaway, I'd love the Michael Miller prints!

My favorite family Christmas tradition is when we gather all the kids around a cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus :-)

jennirowles said...

Yay for giveaways! I like the second set best. My favorite holiday recipe is for chocolate covered cheesecake lollipops. Yum. jennirowles @ yahoo.com

Kelli said...

I LOVE batiks! ...but I also love Moda!! How to choose!?!?

As for Christmas Traditions, I seem to be at a time in my life where all the old traditions are no longer possible! I need to start my own traditions :)

kelli.canady {at} gmail dot com

lisa said...

We do a cheese fondue every year on Christmas Eve on my husband's side of the family. A great tradition! I really like the Moda fabrics and Batiks!! You will have to choose for me.

Natasha said...

I like baking and wrapping presents while watching Love Actually.

Anya said...

My favorite tradition is making gingerbread houses. Thanks for the chance -- I'll take either one...too hard to choose.

Katie said...

My favorite tradition is the Christmas tree. Going out in the cold (usually at night) to a local tree shop to pick out the best tree. Then going home and decorating it. I love pulling out all the ornaments and remembering how we got them.

Erika said...

One of my favorite Christmas traditions/recipes is the gumbo we make every Christmas Eve using leftover smoked turkey from Thanksgiving that we set aside and froze. So tasty!

Both choices for the giveaway look great! The batiks get a smidge more votes than the other fabric selection because I'm a sucker for batiks.

Laura said...

I'd be happy with either the fabrics! My favorite holiday tradition is making peanut butter balls.

LLMum said...

I love both choices, so either would be a great addition.
My favorite tradition is making fudge wreaths for our friends and family.

Kathie said...

Hi -- I would love the Batik set of fabric, but wouldn't say no to the second set either. Thanks for sharing.

Favorite Christmas tradition . . . kids can get stockings & bring to their bedroom but have to wait for Daddy to shower before can open any presents or re-visit the tree.

tabitha said...

I's be thrilled with either of the prizes, but I guess I'll pick the batik.

My favorite tradition is doing our Advent activities. We only started three years ago, but it's a great time for the family to relax and enjoy each other's company.

Natural Violet said...

Love the second set of fabrics. I always make peppermint candy cane cookies for the holidays.

The Retired Mama said...

Two sets of fabrics! I can not choose! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Favorite tradition. My dear wonderful mother made a Christmas tree out of cinnamon rolls on a cookie sheet for Christmas breakfast. I made it with my children as well. No grandkids yet, but the tradition will continue. Simple, sweet, family and EASY.

acmcs said...

I love potato cakes and herring on xmas eve. thanks for the giveaway op! toilandtrouble [at] spambog [dot] com

Marianne said...

I love making Snickerdoodles cookies and eating them is even better! I like the first set. thanks.

Jodi said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I love those Michael Miller and Moda fabrics.

ircabbit said...

My favorite Christmas recipe is berry pie. It's so simple and tastes delicious! The trick is not to put in too much sugar so that the tanginess of the berries can really shine.

Berry pie filling:
2 c raspberries
1 c blackberries
2 c blueberries
3/4 c sugar
1 T flour
1 t cinnamon

hands_of_gold said...

i'd love either set! they're both beautiful!! as for food traditions... latkes - it's hanukkah in my house and we fry potato latkes (pancakes) in oil to symbolize our festival of lights! whatever your tradition... enjoy!

Kelly said...

I'd love either set, but I'm drooling a bit more over the Moda set! Christmas tradition - breakfast at my mom's! And my dad cooks the scrambled eggs - only thing he ever cooks!

kellyjo(dot)haines(at)gmail(dot)com

Becky said...

Lovely fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win!

Favorite tradition is that we have sent a picture with every Christmas card for the last 29 years. We then frame one every year and put out the entire collection for the month of December. I love to see the kids growing up before my very eyes. They are 19, 24, 26 this year and still willing to get their photo taken.

Daisy said...

I like hthem all. Thanks for the giveaway

sb said...

We write letters to ourselves on Christmas Eve, and read last year's letters as well. We don't share them with others, so it's just a private time of reflection and humor as we read what silly and special things we wrote in the prior year.

I'm loving option #2!

Anonymous said...

Beautiful fabrics. I like both sets but love the first one. One of my christmas traditions is to decorate our tree with home made ornaments. Getting them out every year and 're-discovering' each one is so special.

Stephanie said...

Second set, please! Nice giveaway...thanks!

JennB2567 said...

Thank you

Kelly O. said...

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh how kind, lovge it all but REALLY love the seconset. I love to pile in the car and go and look at lights! Thank you for the chance!

Sara said...

The batiks are beautiful.

My favorite Christmas tradition is looking at all the Christmas lights (followed closely by waking up Christmas morning and opening presents before doing anything else, no contacts, no bra, no breakfast, no tea even!)

The Schaper Scene said...

Love Michael Miller and Moda! I love decorating the tree while enjoying cookies and eggnog with my family. Thanks for the giveaway!

kikisdeals@hotmail.com

Gwyneth said...

Meg said...

i love the second one! my family doesn't really have many christmas traditions..when i start a family of my own, we'll be changing that. :)

Jenna Z said...

Yum yum! Fabric! This year I am making a ton of travel tissue holders our of cute fabrics! Perfect for little girls, teens, mom, friends!

Kerry said...

I'd like the second set. On Christmas morning (well, whatever time it is when we are done opening presents and the rolls are ready), we eat my mom's homemade cinnamon rolls. :)

Megan said...

My favorite Christmas recipe is Yorkshire pudding, which my dad makes with a rib roast almost every year. There's also my mom's "dream bars" which have pecans and coconut and brown sugar on a shortbread cru..s..mm - excuse me, I just drooled.

Love those batiks, but I wouldn't sneeze at the other set, either!

Lola said...

Thank you for the giveaway!

I love to buy the Christmas tree with my husband and decorate it together. Also, watch Christmas movies.

Jerri said...

I love all the cookies Christmas brings!

Vesuviusmama said...

I'd love either set, but I guess I prefer the second, as those are fabrics I am less likely to buy for myself. My favorite part of the season (aside from time with family) is listening to Nat King Cole croon the carols.

leigh7911 said...

The second set of fabrics is great! (The first is too, I just like the second better. :) ) Honestly, my favorite Christmas tradition is stockings, both stuffing them and emptying them. Which makes me wonder why I've not made any for my little family now that I'm all grown...

Samantha said...

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway - beautiful fabric...both sets!

Megan said...

My favorite tradition is - all the food! and singing Christmas carols at church! And I'm not picky about which set to win... you are awesome!

megan.nadalet at gmail dot com

daizee said...

Very pretty - I love the sets - especially the second one!

Kimberly said...

My favorite Christmas tradition involves singing around the piano with my family. That's the best! I love both sets of fabric, especially the first.

attemptingcreativity at gmail dot com

Kangaroo said...

fave trad -- picking up the first qt of egg nog on the way home from getting our tree. pour, spike, decorate--holiday bliss!

i love BOTH giveaways, only a slight preference for the second but seriously, i would be thrilled with either collectioN! thank you!

Eema-le said...

Both sets are gorgeous and I'd love to win either one.

Brandy said...

Favorite holiday recipe.....Oreo truffles.

Put one package of Oreos through the food processor until they are powder, mix with on pound of powdered sugar, and one brick of softened cream cheese. Refrigerate until they are easy to work with. Roll them into balls. I like to chill them again. Then dip them in melted chocolate and chill again. So rich, but so yumm....

KatyK said...

Batiks win anytime - pairs with any and all
thanks for the chance

Mamma Pie said...

Mmmmm! I love chocolate. I eat chocolate all Christmas season, in any form.
I also like your second set of fabrics.
patrickDOTmarybethATgmailDOTcom

kathytypestoo said...

both sets are wonderful! i would probably prefer the second set, but beggars shouldn't be choosy! love watching my kids 18, 19 and 21 bound down the stairs to check the advent calendar every morning-too cute!

amber said...

I love woodland bloom, i could never get enough of that fabric. I love seeing the joy and light of the Christmas spirit in the eyes of my children. I love spending time with family.

April in Autumn said...

I like the second set of fabric the best.

I'm also an east(ish) coast girl living on the west coast. Last Christmas I made my mom's kolachki recipe - cookies everyone makes back home. Here, people had never heard of them and just went crazy over them. I've already gone through one batch this season. Luckily I made extra frozen dough for later.

Shannon Hillinger said...

I would love the Michael Miller set. Thank you!
My favorite Christmas tradition is driving around and looking at the lights with my sister. We had to skip it last year because of our snow storm, and I was so sad.

bethany said...

I love the micheal miller fabric bundle!! Thanks!!

RyanSarahN said...

I love the woodland bloom set - thanks for the giveaway! We always have angel food birthday cake on Christmas to remember the reason for the holiday. Yummy!

Care said...

I'd love the second set -- gorgeous!!

My favorite treat to make at Christmas is English Toffee. I only let myself make it just that once all year, because I usually end up eating it all! ;)

emtdlb said...

I love that first set, it is so bright and coloful. My mother-in-law has this great cheeseball recipe that she has made every year since we were married. It is so great and I can't make it like her so it is such a treat. Thanks for the chance!!!!!

Sara said...

I love the 2nd set.

At christmas I love to bake cookies and make candy with my kids.

Courtney said...

I love the batiks. I love my mom's stuffing that she makes, we only get it two times a year and there are never any leftovers!

Meghan said...

I'd love the 2nd set. I love baking cookies with my kids.

Katie B. said...

THanks so much for the giveaway! I'd love the second sent. Thanks for the chance to win.

We started my son's advent calendar this year, and it's my new favorite tradition! Happy holidays.

two hippos said...

I love fudge and am determined to learn how to make it. Also, I love the second batch of fabrics as I've had my eye on those Michael Miller prints for a while now.

Jennifer said...

The second set looks right up my alley! Thanks!

rosemeg said...

So pretty! My preference would be for the second set. So pretty! My favorite tradition is simple: just plain being with my family. My mom makes farmer's cheese pancakes on Christmas. We open presents. We take a walk in some woods. It is awesome.

Nancy said...

I love the second set, great giveaway.

Chris Worthy said...

Beautiful fabrics -- the second set is more my color.
I will share a favorite recipe (such as it is)-- Take a pound of Brussels sprouts (washed, trimmed and quartered) and cook on medium high heat in a splash of olive oil. Toss with sea salt and lots of freshly ground pepper. Cook the sprouts until they caramelize and char a bit on the outside. They will be so sweet they taste like candy!

Willa said...

Batiks rock!

But I would be happy with either group of fabrics!

Breanna S. said...

I love the Michael Miller fabrics.

My favorite holiday tradition is getting a real tree from our local tree farm.

Paradise said...

Either fabric set would be a lovely gift! Thanks!

Mary said...

What great fabrics! Our favorite Christmas tradition happens Christmas Eve. In the late afternoon the whole family gets together. I make baked brie en croute and have really good wine on hand for the adults, and everyone brings his or her speciality hors d'oeuvres or finger foods. Then we open the family gift which is a puzzle with 1,000 or more pieces. We spend the evening talking, laughing, and working on the puzzle. Then we all go to Midnight Mass together. The puzzle work usually picks back up after Christmas dinner.

simplehappyhome said...

Very pretty fabrics, all of them!
A favorite Christmas tradition in our family is observing Advent. It gives our daughter a good, calm way to count down to Christmas, helps us to focus on our faith during the season, and connects us to so many others throughout the world (and history) who celebrate the same things we do.

amber said...

one of my favorite christmas crafts is really something i haven't made, but will someday. as a child we had a set of felt carollers that we put up on the mantel. the set from childhood is starting to fade and shows signs of being so old. turns out the pattern is still in the box, so someday i will be making a new set...the tradition continues.

thanks for you offer. if i had to choose a set, i really like the second one.

Goddess in Progress said...

Hi there! Ooh, love that collection of Michael Miller/Moda prints.

My favorite Christmas cookie recipe are "nutmeg noels." They're kind of like sugar cookies with nutmeg, rolled in colored sugar. YUM.

Liz @ teeny tiny quilts

free indeed said...

Second choice for me. Tradition we do every year is decorate christmas cookies together with fam or friends. It's a great afternoon of laughter, creativity and fun.

abby said...

Either set would be great but if I had to chose I would pick the Micheal Miller fabrics.

This weekend I will be making peanutbutter blossoms and frosted sugar cookies.

Rachael Adele said...

Love the MM fabrics! Since I'm Jewish, but my husband was raised Catholic, his parents are thrilled we spend Dec. 25 with them every year. My tradition on that day is Chinese food and a movie!

adriane said...

Love the cookies around the holidays! Thanks for the giveaway, beautiful fabric too!

Sarah said...

I'd love the second set, thanks for the giveaway!

One of my fav. traditions is playing musical chimes! We do it every year and it's so much fun!

Firesong said...

Oh, wow, I love both sets.

My favorite Christmas tradition is on the eve we all get new pjs and we put them on and have cookies and milk (or coffee for mom and dad). The kid is getting older now but since he still lives here he still has to participate. So sweet and comfy.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Sarah G said...

I love both sets - maybe the 2nd one more? They're great though.

Grace Wong said...

blueteardrop at comcast.net

Jessica Jo said...

I like the second set!

Grace said...

Love the batiks.

I like to bake gingerbread men and women from a family recipe and give out to friends. I can already smell them baking - yum-

squareby said...

Oooo ... love fabric. I like the second set better since it's a bit more modern and more me. At Christmas I generally like to make my own Christmas cards because I think it lets people know that even though I'm poor and can't afford to get them a gift, I still care enough to actually make them a card.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Our favorite family tradition for the holidays is to make (and eat) poppy seed kolachy. YUM. Thanks for participating in the give away. I love the second grouping of fabrics.

Nicole said...

what a great giveaway!! My favorite holiday tradition is the FoOD. My mother always makes sure there's plenty to eat all day long. Shrimp cocktail, homemade chex mix, my favorite cookies (candy cane cookies, google it, its the betty crocker one and the first thing that shows up), and then macaroni and cheese!!!
Merry Christmas! :)

Susan said...

Our tradition is eating out at Chili's after XMAS Eve mass....we started this a few yrs ago and it's very relaxing before the big day.

Nancy said...

Oooh, love the batiks. One cookie that I try to make every year is Italian Anise Pillows, in honor of my DH's Italian heritage.

Jenny said...

i woudl dearly love the second set of prints, thanks for a chance...i love opening our stockings first thing on christmas morning...all together. thanks for a chance.

Evelyn said...

Oh, I'd have to go with option #2 (even though I like batiks too!). My favorite tradition is decorating a gingerbread house - it's so much fun to watch my daughter go nuts with the candy. :)

Kirsten said...

My favorite Christmas tradition is getting pajamas at my mom's house Christmas eve, in the same Care Bears gift box that has been my christmas eve pajama box since I was 2. Mom has tried to replace the box a few times, but I won't let her!
I would definitely choose option #2!

Quiltsmiles said...

Love the galazy batiks! My favorite Holiday tradition. Waiting to have our presents from the tree at 6pm on Dec. 25th. It makes Christmas last the whole day. We even did this while the children were young and it's now a tradition.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway. Happy Holidays.

Jane

AlwaysInspired said...

Wonderful fabric! I'd love to win it!

Sara said...

Tradition - is driving around looking at Christmas lights and then going for hot cocoa somewhere...

I'm going with option #2 - but, if I would take either...

Anne said...

I love the second set! I am working on starting the tradition of hand made gifts with my children. The oldest is 5 and is making pillows for everyone this year. My 2 year old will draw pictures. And the baby will probably have to wait for next year to get in on the action. :) Thanks for the fab giveaway!

Her Royal Highness said...

we open one gift on christmas eve. It's a perfect tease for the next day

Kimberly said...

I love the second set of fabrics. So pretty. A newish tradition (3rd year) for us is the Christmas Eve dinner we have with really close friends and we feast on steak and lobster. Yum! I look forward to it ever year.

Tara said...

Sarah said...

My favourite Christmas craft is actually making paper chains. It's a left over from when I was a girl that is simple enough to do with my toddler :)

If I should happen to luck out and win, I would prefer the second set - I love those woodland bloom prints!

Kama said...

My favorite Christmas tradition is that my dad always reads all of us Twas the Night Before Christmas. Instead of reading it correctly, he says, "And laying a finger inside of his nose, and giving a nod, up the chimney he rose." :) Too funny! I love both sets of the fabrics--great colors!

Sew It Up! said...

Our is ready the story of His birth on Christmas day. Love the fabrics!

The Mangerchine's said...

Wow, I would love the Michael Miller and Moda fabric, but would be happy eith either set.

My favorite holiday tradition is going to the Dollar Store every Christmas Eve with my husband's family. My father in law gives us each enough money to buy a $1 present for each person. We sneak around the store dodging each other and then go home and exchange gifts. Some are gag gifts, some are practical, but it's tons of fun!

i love that michael miller set.

my favorite thing about christmas is getting the tree and decorating it. that is the only time in the whole season that i still feel like a kid again when i dig out all my ornaments i love so much.

thisdamselflies said...

Our Christmas tradition growing up was stockings Christmas morning. My mom handmade the stockings, and everyone got a movie every year. We'd pick one of the four new movies and watch it while we all lounged in our pjs.

Oh, and I love the second set of fabrics!

Great giveaway! Thanks for participating in the Giveaway Day.

Alyssa said...

Oh I love the Micheal Miller fabric. My favorite holiday tradition is to have cheese, crackers, sausage & other oderve (sp?) type foods for supper on christmas eve - cooking! And when we lived in Denver, CO we would go to the Zoo Lights, lots of fun for kids of all ages.

Bethany said...

I love the Michael Miller fabric! I don't really have any holiday traditions. We make homemade cinnamon rolls when it snows (which doesn't happen much here in Georgia). Thanks for the great giveaway.

Sarah Seitz said...

Hey! I love the Michael Miller set! I always make Blondies (cookies) for Christmas! The recipe is on www.smittenkitchen.com. So good and so easy!

Sarah @ http://comeandseetheseitz.com

I love them both! My favorite Christmas tradition is after the Christmas dinner, we all pile into the car and drive around to look at all of the Christmas lights. Gives us time to relax and just appreciate the day. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway!

I love both sets, but would probably lean towards the 2nd one. For Christmas my husband and I cut down a tree each year from either our probperty or my father in laws. We need to plant some new ones soon!

Mama Lusco said...

I would love the Moda and Michael collection! We cut our own Christmas tree. The smell is fabulous! Thanks for the giveaway. alusco(at)centurytel(dot)net

Libby said...

I love both the packs for different reasons ! We don't have traditions yet - perhaps after this year we will !

Wenchy Woman said...

Those batiks rock!

My family is still working on our own traditions. But, growing up there was always The christmas story that my mom and I would watch endlessly. I love that movie, really need to add it to my collection.

Thank you for the awesome give away.

MommytoAva said...

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is driving through lights displays (whether in parks or neighborhoods). It's always at the top of our list come the first snow fall.
I would love to receive the second set of fabrics (Michael Miller, etc.). Thanks for this fun giveaway!

Will & Greta said...

Those fabrics are beautiful! Perfect for some upcoming Christmas gift projects.

Our favorite holiday tradition is going to the beach on Christmas morning. Lucky we live Hawaii! :)

Hootie said...

Happy Thursday!

Christmas tradition: since we don't get snow too often, at the first snow we all load up into the car after dark and ride around looking at everyone's lights! :)

susan said...

We also don't get much snow, and it rarely comes on Christmas, usually in January. We love to bundle up, grab the dog and walk the neighborhood looking at all the beautiful lights.

I love the second set of fabrics. Our favorite Christmas tradition is having gigantic, everything-you-can-think-of breakfast Christmas morning. Thanks for a good giveaway.

Jessie Lathroum said...

My family and I exchange gifts Christmas Eve. Its dark and chilly and we light candles, play with the little ones, laugh, eat baked goods and drink wine and its perfect!!

I would love to win the second collection, I love the bright colors!!

I love the first set, but the second set would be nice to, I am easy to please, I just want to win something, anything... Baking Christmas cookies is my favorite holiday tradition, with my kids and now my grandchildren and we even have one great grand child who likes to put on the sprinkles, or maybe she justs like sprinkling her tongue...

Elizabeth said...

i'm loving both of those sets. gorgeous!

Beatrix from Kindershop said...

My favorite tradition are our candy/chocolate filled advent calendars. Nothing beats seeing exciting children running down the stairs each morning in December to see what little surprise there is that day.
I'd love to win the Moda fabric. Thanks hosting the giveaway.

Pam said...

Our favorite tradition is coffee cakes and keuchan on Christmas while we are opening gifts.

I love the first set you your give away ...thanks so much.

lisa said...

my aunts and uncles always had a gift exchanse, there were 7 of them, so each child gave to another, drew names, you know the deal. When they started getting married, spouces could choose to be included as an individual or a couple. My cousin joined two years ago, and I joined three years ago. It;s neat to be included in something that now spans generations.

Mamma Bears Fault said...

When I was little I could open one present Christmas eve. So of course, I would shake them all, check out their weight and make my selection. One year there was this small gift that rattled and jingled so that one just had to be opened!! It was an empty margarine container that my dad had put a couple of clothes pins and small bells in. He thought it was hilarious....I did not! :) Needless to say, mom gave in and let me open another gift as she wasn't in on dad's scheme. In hindsight, it was quite clever of him :)

Thank you for the opportunity to win your fab. fabric - I actually prefer selection #2, but I would be happy with either. - Elizabeth

Renee G said...

Lovely fabric give-a-way always looking to build my stash. Love the MM/Moda set. I love to sit around the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve and open tny boxes with Christmas symbols and talk about them wwith my son. We also randomly select a family and gift them with a 12 days of Christmas. Thanks.

The Michael Miller set is so fun! We're just starting our Christmas traditions and it's so fun to read what everyone else is doing - thanks for sharing!

Meredith said...

We are just starting to figure out what traditions we want to put in place in our family... We are really excited about incorporating Christmas traditions into the mix and are thinking of using Noel Piper's Advent Calendar that uses a lot of repetition to help the kiddos get excited about the season.

Thanks so much for the giveaway, and look forward to reading your blog in the future! I love both sets of fabric.

StephanieS said...

The second set of fabric is what I would pick. Thanks for giving!
My favorite Christmas gift is the small special gift in my stocking every year.

Erin said...

I love love love Michael Miller's fabrics, so the second set would be my choice (although both are really lovely).

I really enjoy making holiday cookies and always find a new recipe at realsimple.com. Maybe this year I will find a good cookie swap!!

Shawna said...

I love christmas! so many fun traditions. my children were just talking about how their favo tradition is opening one present on christmas eve... and it's always new jammies! So then they get to sleep in warm, cozy, new jammies!

Emily said...

Those are both great! But the second one is just SO lovely... that's my fave. For Christmas, I love going to the zoo with my family to see their light display! So much fun!

Robyn said...

I love those second fabrics.. very pretty... I don't have a favorite holiday tradition... though for about 15 years now, I've waited in line to pick up a KBCO studio C CD for myself and my cousin... tomorrow morning, and it's gonna be a cold one. :P I guess it wouldn't be Christmas without that.

elizabethcarroll said...

I'm loving some christmas cookies right now! Espresso Chocolate ones to be exact! http://elizabethcarroll.wordpress.com/2009/12/02/chocolate-espresso-snowcaps/

I love the second set of fabrics! Thanks!

I LOVE set number 2 and we traditionally see the Christmas lights every year.

Krystina said...

Love the Michael Miller fabric! I'd be so excited to win anything though!

My favorite christmas tradition has got to be going to pick out a tree the day after Thanksgiving. When I was a kid I'd go with my mom and she'd take for.e.ver to pick out the "right" tree. I used to complain when I was a kid, but now I do the same thing!

Elizabeth Kay said...
